Mark Ames


Mark Ames, author of the article “Obama Is Leading the U.S. Into a Hellish Quagmire“, discusses the U.S. military presence in Afghanistan that surpasses the levels during Soviet occupation, how Russia benefits from (and is gloating about) a U.S./Taliban stalemate, the slim chance of Russia’s inclusion in NATO and George F. Will’s “Walter Cronkite moment” on Afghanistan.

  1. Wonderful interview! Peace is the most important issue of our time, and I dread the day that Israel drags us into ah assault on Iran, WWIII.

  2. Russia is not only gloating about our Afghan quagmire but probably quietly helping the Taliban.
    After all Russ has bn dealing with refractory Muslims on their borders for centuries but U.S. troops are another matter
    How wld we like Russkie troops in Mexico?
    I predict we will never put missiles in Poland – even Obummer must realize how provocative that wld be. If he doesnt, mebe Hillarious or Bidet (cq) might tell him
    I'm sure the missiles wld have both Defense and Offensive capabilities.
    Didnt we just catch the Paks altering missiles we gave them?

  3. How about this for a title:

    "Obama Continues to Lead Lincoln's Efforts to Oppress People and Impose Tyranny"

    Different people, different places, same story.

    Collectivism is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit.
